Good day all,
      Looking for an idea or answer for a problem
In the process os setting up my   QS 10. (2015) I ripped one of the pole which support the bed pans.  See pic below. Would it be best to replace or get someone to repair?

That looks like it might be tough to fix, but I'll bet any fabricator could make a replacement for you pretty easily.  For a quick fix, you could always drill holes on the good sides.  You'd have to do it on both ends.

It might be a T15P.  I just ran into this when I tried to move my propane tank. T15 was too small and T20 was too big.  Turns out a #2 square bit will do the trick if it's a T15P.  Here's a link to the T15P bit I bought on Amazon.
1.  I had a 2018 and currently have a 2017, both with this design.  I've had no issues with wind noise or leaks.  You would have to talk with a fabricator who could install a flat door, but I think the newer campers have a deeper AC.
2.  I believe they made this change starting with the 2016 models.  All the 2015s and older I've seen have the flat door.
3.  You would have to cut a hole and install mounting rails.  This was done at the factory for my 2017.

Hi terrbear,

I sent you a PM yesterday about a user on the Aluminum Camper Forum who wants to get in touch with you about your 8.0.  They can't get access to the LL forum to contact you.

I'm with klaker.  We mainly listen to audio from our phones, so we picked up a water resistant bluetooth speaker, and it works great.  We can also place it next to our chairs, so we can keep the volume down and not disturb other sites.  Here's a link to the one we got.

Downeaster, where are you located?  There is one user I came across who had one made by Secrest's Upholstery in Chambersburg, PA.  Cost was $475 for their 8.0 and the company also installed the snaps.

Sorry about that.  I thought they made them along with the tent.  I've seen some posts where people have had them made, so let me see if I can find those.  If you're on Facebook, Join the Quicksilver Tent Camper group and post your question there.
You're correct about the well on the 2018s.  I forgot about that.  Here are some shots of the 2018 with the off road kit.

Contact TopStitch.  They make the cover and you can buy direct.  I believe you'll have to supply and install the snaps.

I'm in the same boat.  You would need a lift kit, as yours has a small wheel well, which can't be modified.  The off road kit had a 2200 pound axle, so check yours to see what you have.  If you have the 1500 pound axle you may want to think about upgrading it.  Give Dexter Axle a call and they should be able to assist you with what you would need to lift it, as well as the axle parts you need if you want to upgrade.

Hey there,

I am the new owner of a used 8.0. I would like to buy an attached tent like you've got. Do you (or anyone else) know how/where to get one?

Call TopStitch.  They make the tonneau cover, tents, and awning.  I've heard it's cheaper and quicker to go to them direct as opposed to through a dealer.
Very nice.  Here is a link to a similar mod someone did to a 8.1.  Did you end up reaching out to Dexter while gathering the parts?  I plan on eventually modding mine to upgrade the axle, add lift kit, bigger tires, and possibly brakes.  Unfortunately there isn't much I can do about the fender\wheel well on mine, so it will look a little odd.

There was a user with a 10.0 who had an extra aluminum bar welded right behind the bumper to double the thickness.  He then added a receiver hitch where he could add a storage shelf.  Looked like a great option, but I'm not sure how much weight it could hold.  LL rates the rear deck at 150 lbs. max.  He had a video on the mod, but looks like his YouTube account is not longer active. 

If you join the Livin' Lite Tent Campers group on Facebook, there is a user named Kurt who is the current owner.  I just asked him if he could provide pics of the mod, but it's in storage, so he won't be able to take pics until the spring.

Cool to know they individually weigh each trailer.  Thanks for the update.
